101 Kaba Gaidi NY needs your help! Our goal is to teach and play Bulgarian Kaba Gaida and Tupan – in New York… and – as you may guess from the name – to get at least 101 people to join us!

101 Kaba Gaidi is a project of Young Bulgarian Voices New York, a Bulgarian language and music school.  The group started classes less than two years ago and already over 30 students of all ages are learning the magic of the Kaba Gaida and Tupan. Your support will help us order additional instruments for the school – learning to play a Bagpipe or Tupan is a serious commitment and we need instruments that our student can try – before they buy. We are ordering our instruments directly from some of the best crafts-men in Bulgaria. This helps to keep alive the ancient traditions of Kaba Gaida and Tupan making. Part of the money that we will raise will help the group to play not just in New York, but also at other cities in US (see the back of the t-shirt – we just came back from Chicago!), Canada  and maybe… other parts of the World! PO5674768-back7-cu

The design of the back of the T-Shirt is based on original Bulgarian post stamp from 1974. The text of the stamp (after some small adjustments in 2015) is :

We want to be able to offer full tuition scholarships to some of our future students – and you can help us do it!

If you are not sure how exactly the Kaba Gaida and Tupan sound, check our web site, Facebook page and YouTube channel – it is really magical! And check back again in two more years – the magic will be even stronger !

ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT – please, buy a T-Shirt and forward this link to your friends!

THANK YOU!
